MU is a minimalist architecture project located in Aomori, Japan, designed by Ikeda Yukie Architects. The house serves as both a residence and photo studio for the clients. In order to create an openness that would also protect against the harsh climate, the architects created a deformed quadrangular pyramid that faces the street. Transitioning from a private to public space is as simples as opening the sliding partitions within the space.
